The story of a young woman and her fear of clouding her husband's talents, shown through their love story

What’s my biggest fear? Well I can tell you know its not what you are thinking of. Yes I have normal fears like spiders and heights, but that’s not my biggest fear. I’m terrified of restricting my husband. I’m scared that blocking him from doing the things that he loves. I never intended to become the singer-song writer I am, I have my husband to thank for that. He never held me back, I did that myself. He is the one telling me not to give up the opportunity to use my voice in the best way I knew how. Jake has always been thinking about my happiness before his own, a husband that every woman dreams of. Jake is all that and more. I have always loved singing and writing my own songs ever since I was little. Once I reached highschool, that was it for me and music. I never really had a chance to continue the one thing I loved, because of stress and anxiety. The bullying never helped either. However, I pushed through the trenches of highschool and finished with high grades. Then I started my nursing course. Music was a distant memory by then. I kept my head down and worked hard for my parents to have a successful daughter. Until I met Jake. 

 

Jake and I met at a bar. I was there with a few of my friends just having a drink or two when the group performing that night came onto the stage. And there he was, playing the guitar and reminding me of my love of music. That night was the start of our everlasting love story. A few years later, we married and a year after, I was holding Caitlyn in my arms. Jake and I would sing for her all the time and I found a new inspiration for my song lyrics. I never planned to record them, nevermind to be where I am now. For 2 years, Jake stood up begging me for me not to ignore my love for music and to become and singer-songwriter, but I continued to hold my family as my priority. Then last year, Jack came along. That’s when Jake up his guitar, he wanted me to shine as he looked after the kids. After another 6 months of persistence, I gave in. And then I was where I am now. 

 

Throughout my several trips to the recording studio and multiple interviews, I saw how much Jake had given up to let me do what I love. He gave up his love of guitar to put me first and his job to put the kids first. I did my best to take care of Caitlyn and Jack, but as I became more and more popular, I lost more and more of my time. I feel as if I am being too selfish at times. I’m doing what I love most yet Jake gave up his love of music to support me. I love my family and don’t ever want to put them after my music. Family is everything. I want Jake to shine just like he wanted me to. He has started playing again but not as much as he used to. I have started to focus on my family first, then my music. I have started to focus on writing songs for other artists like Selena Gomez and Jaymes Young so that I have more time with my two little angels in my life. I just fear of clouding my husband’s talent with mine. He is the reason why I am here and now it is his turn to shine...
